Denver mayor sparks Super Bowl chile battle

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) A friendly Super Bowl bet between the mayors of Seattle and Denver is causing a stir in New Mexico.

If the Seahawks win, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock has wagered a few things he says are indicative of his city. Among them, handmade skis, a hoodie and a sampling of Denver's "amazing green chile."

To set the record straight, New Mexico officials are getting green chile care packages ready for both mayors.
